    Good lord that's incredible.

    Since we're talking about the differences between the 4017B and the 4017C, how different are they, really? I've heard the C-preamp being described as "smoother", but since the C preamp is so short, shockmounting and wind protection seem like a challenge unless you can afford Cinela. I've used the B preamp and I know it to sound really good, but I've yet to hear a head-to-head comparison between the B and the C.

    Jan if there isn't an NDA issue can you send me one of your reports please. Is there anything you wish you could change about the app? iPad mini I'm assuming.

    Which one sounds better the grey or the blue one? 😂

    I have two MiniCmit mics for sale: one blue, one grey. Make me an offer.

    Since I've been working a lot in reflective environments lately (prisons), allow me to add a layer to the Zaxcom wireless plusses: an algorithm designed to deal specifically with RF reflections. While on the subject, there's also an algorithm that narrows each TRX's RF footprint allowing more TRX's per inch of bandwidth. I originally bought into the system for its future proof nature and continue to invest for the same reason.

    The monthly MovieSlate $ is totally worth it IMO / IME. Cancel subscription between gigs. Elegant.

    What is your spare recorder

    "Yup, I've owned 2x DR680 before I moved on to F4 then F8n Even the F4 is better than the DR680 in every way for 98% of users. But yup, I could imagine there is a few 2% of people who could find the DR680 to be more handy instead. " – Yet, it is a bit disappointing to have so many digital recorders out there with no AES I/O and/or a link/cascade feature - not least as a link/cascade feature would make owning multiples of the same the machine have a greater value (and function) than just the sum of parts. "Many many times so over this thread." – Copy that!

    Oh, there still has been hardware improvements with the F8n. But yes, they're relatively small tweaks, which means the F8 is still an amazing bargain. oh LOL Yup, I've owned 2x DR680 before I moved on to F4 then F8n Even the F4 is better than the DR680 in every way for 98% of users. But yup, I could imagine there is a few 2% of people who could find the DR680 to be more handy instead. Official accounts from Zoom have often responded on the Zoom Facebook forums, they're very active with users on this. Many many times so over this thread.

    Hey! My DR680 still gets used to this day. I use it to drain down 8 NiMH batteries quickly before recharging / deep cycle charges and oh boy does it drain those batteries quick!

    What is your spare recorder

    AES/cascade aside, I'd imagine a F8n is better than DR680 in almost every way - it's got 8 crappy faders instead of 1 crappy encoder/fader for starters :-). tc, dual sd slots, balanced o/p, fader board, better layout, colour display, app etc.

    Lectrosonics vs Audio Limited

    I have to agree with both Bill and Donavan, there is nothing to compare with the Zaxcom wireless series. Besides sounding great and actors loving them because of their size the ability to either take the audio from the internal recording card or re-record multiple transmitters while still attached to the actors is just a no-brainer. The best to minimize the auction of the spectrum, hands down!

    Lectrosonics vs Audio Limited

    I'd be more than happy to go with Zaxcom and, yes, they do have a number of additional features that I would really like to have such as encryption and a built in recorder. The only serious objection I have is that I don't believe they offer a true discrete 2 channel "Super-Slot" receiver. Do they? Right now with my current configuration using Sound Devices recorders, and the need to frequently pull the receivers out of my bag and repurpose them for live sound events and webcasts, the "Super-Slot" issue (believe it or not) is probably a higher priority.

    What is your spare recorder

    Wow, so there might not have been any hardware changes at all in: i. A headphone amp system ii. A power distribution system that allows a switched off machine (without a second dedicated battery) to keep on powering a TC clock. Impressive. But still possible (i: the noise may have been a software problem which was identified and resolved; ii: the machine now has a 'sleep' mode which keeps the TC clock going). I haven't read any manuals or updates before posting this so forgive any abruptness. Still, it would be good to hear from Zoom Official (hopefully listening here) what the actual situation might be. If the F8n was improved in hardware and the F8 ironed out in software I would be impressed and gladdened to be told it so. The F8 I believe was a game changer for lower cost quality semi pro gear (I think more than the DR680 and the Roland R44 - although both still hold the AES io advantage). Jez

    DPA slim cable getting stiff and brakes

    While I love DPA 4061 sound wise I was disappointed when I had a crack in the insulation about 3cm long. The lav was only a few months old, and very little use but dpa refused to replace the cable. They could not understand how that could have happened. Its like the insulation is split. Taped it and still use it since over a year now.

    4017c vs 4017b sounds definetly different no matter the switches. I do like 4017c more but this little and light mic isn't easy for the suspension. Best for me is Rycote Inv-lite 19. The supplied Fluffy does really need time to get on so a quick change into a basket is not easy. And I have no basket yet I am happy with. I do have the DPA Basket made by Rycote but the Inv-lite suspension is better. I wonder if there is a outdoor basket for the minicmit that could be easily stripped down to use indoors.

    Remote Audio MEON Hi-Q batteries

    Only the inspire Energy calibrating chargers have the fans. Regular chargers don't. Audio root is just a charger. No need for cooling.

    Remote Audio MEON Hi-Q batteries

    Audioroot is a French company, so there may be import duties both directions adding to the price. Unless they've changed since I originally bought, the inspired energy chargers have really loud fans in them. The Audioroot charger is pricier but makes no noise.
